Buzz Away Provides Ultimate Mosquito Protection
Protection For Extreme Rainforest Expeditions
Rain Forests such as South America's Amazon jungle region are considered to be the most powerful and bio-actively diverse natural environments on the planet. And more and more, researchers are traveling to these areas to study plants that may provide better treatments for viruses, infections, cancer and even AIDS. Yet extracting these secrets from the jungles is no easy task. The "BUGS" of these jungles are unusually aggressive. Spiders the size of shoes, bees that kill and swarms of relentless mosquitoes call for extreme protection. The repellent of choice for two such expeditions is Buzz Away, a plant-based product from Quantum Health of Eugene, OR.
Jon Fiume, Vice President of Retail operations for the Ritzman Pharmacy of Wadsworth, Ohio leads a regular expedition to the Amazon region to study the relationship between traditional medicine and natural products. His pharmacists and other employees find that these trips provide insight and education that is invaluable to their customer base. "The first question we get asked is 'how did you survive the bugs?' and our answer is that we couldn't have survived the trip if it weren't for the protection that Buzz Away provided", quips Fiume.
Physician Marcus Laux of Los Angeles, CA is another Buzz Away enthusiast. "I've led and been a member of many expeditions to the rain forests of South and Central America to study medicinal properties of indigenous botanicals. The mosquitoes there are fierce - in the Amazon they're as big as birds - Buzz Away works even under the harshest conditions". Dr. Laux, a naturopathic physician is a Clinical Professor on the staff of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine and his last book, "Natural Woman, Natural Menopause" from Harper Collins is in Amazon.com's top ten percent.
Both expedition leaders chose Buzz Away because the science behind proves it's effectiveness and it does not rely on DEET, the active ingredient in most repellents. DEET can cause a variety of health problems ranging from dizziness to death, and children are especially susceptible. But adults are at risk as well.
Buzz Away Insect Repellent is rated the most effective plant-based insect repellent available in today's market. Buzz Away holds The National Parenting Award and has been tested and rated the #1 natural repellent by the Good Housekeeping Institute. Concerned parents are now reaching for the ever popular and convenient Buzz Away towelettes.
"We feel strongly about supporting the educational expeditions", said David Shaw, Founder of Quantum Health. "Being able to provide safe, family-friendly protection strong enough for the rainforest yet gentle enough for children makes us very proud".
Buzz Away is formulated with Citronella, Cedarwood, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass and Peppermint - plant extracts which repel bugs. Buzz Away spray is a powerful DEET-free insect repellent and, according to independent laboratory and university tests, is more effective than other leading natural formulas. It smells great, it works great, and because it's DEET-free, it's also the best choice for kids.
